They know not many people will see ME and SUPERSTARS, so they won't use the, "At All Costs" approach when it comes to how they approach the match? I am not sure why you believe such a thing.
If professional athletes in other sports understand that certain stages are bigger than others and performance/effort levels rise for the occasion, why is it so hard to believe Pro Wrestlers don't do the same?
Because it's a fixed sport man
And not all of the injured wrestlers are injured because they are upper midcarders. They're all just really effing old.
Tyson Kidd - 35 - Injured by Samoa Joe on SUPERSTARS
Sting - FIFTY EFFIN SIX. No more needed.
Seth Rollins - 29 - Only outlier, injury caused by lifting a 7'0 325 pound dude at a HOUSE SHOW
Randy Orton - 35 - Injured by taking out the trash
John Cena - 38 - Possibly the only one that fits your narrative (although he's pushing 40.)
Cesaro - 35 - Injured in a non-main event match vs Del Rio(?)
Rusev has been injured multiple times but they've all been minor and he's returned pretty fast.
